A apologize.  I was not making clear the nature of my difficulty.  When the Zire 
is plugged in, the device nodes are created no problem, but if I start a jpilot 
sync before the sync is started on the Palm, the sync fails because the nodes 
don't exist (yet).  This is a jpilot problem, but I was hoping to work around it 
by modifying the hotplug/udev behaviour to not remove nodes.

J-Pilot version 0.99.8-pre7 claims support for pilot-link 0.12 and everything 
works pretty good.  (I did see some corruption in the Tasks/ToDo database, but 
that may be because I did a restore of the Zire (PalmOS 5) from a backup of my 
old VIIx (PalmOS 4).  I'll be opening a separate bug on that with jpilot.)
